|Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force|
Mahō Senki Ririkaru Nanoha Force
July 30, 2009 – ongoing
Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force (魔法戦記リリカルなのはForce, Mahō Senki Ririkaru Nanoha Force, "Magical War Chronicle Lyrical Nanoha Force"), is an on-going manga that takes place six years after Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS. Like the other entries, the story focuses on the Bible of Silver Cross, a magical tome based off an ancient Belkan tome and features the former members of Riot Force 6 joining forces again to form Special Duty Section 6. The series is illustrated by Yukari Higa (of Shina Dark fame) and written by Masaki Tsuzuki.
The manga's title was the first one in the series to not contain "Magical Girl" in it, signifying the departure from the original magical girl (which has been a continuous trend in the series for a long time).
"Force" can be interpreted as a pun on "fourth" in Japanese pronunciation, because Force is chronologically the fourth major entry in the main Nanoha continuity to star Nanoha Takamachi in a major role (SSX didn't feature her at all, while ViVid focuses on Vivio). Additionally, the new heroine Lily is also coded Strosek-4th.
All chapters were originally given English titles in the Japanese manga, but official katakana spellings were added retroactively later. Each chapter title is fully styled as "Record0X:「Title」", except the prologue, which was simply "Record00".
- Volume 1 contains chapters 00 through 04.
- Volume 2 contains chapters 05 through 09.
- Volume 3 contains chapters 10 through 14.
- Volume 4 contains chapters 15 through 19.
- Volume 5 contains chapters 20 through 24.
A fully colored version of the tankōbon, titled Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force true colored, is also being released.
Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force NEXT is a set of illustrations that appeared in the Nyantype magazine supplementary to recent Force chapters.
